Most Sinhalese Happy About Recent Riots! 

By Mohamed R. M. Farook –

Mohamed R. M. Farook

The claim by Elections Commission (EC) Chairman Mahinda Deshapriya that ‘Most Sinhalese Happy About Recent Riots’ that appeared in Daily Mirror of 20th March 2018 is a serious matter for concern and disappointment not only for the Muslims (affected and others) but also for the large majority of peace loving Sinhala Buddhists and others too. It is regrettable that he made that claim whatever occasion or for whatever reasons that could have prompted him to do so.

If he had said that he is ‘happy’ without dragging the Sinhalese then it becomes a single person’s viewpoint and we could forget about it once and for all. But to drag ‘most’ Sinhalese tag is the dangerous element in his claim. Is that claim EC Chairman’s wishful thinking? Did he do a survey (research) and if so what was his sample and sampling method? Of course if he has gathered his data (which he could portray as information) from persons directly, remotely and also stage-back involvement in the recent riots, then he must be ashamed of dragging the educated, religious (Buddhism), peace-loving majority Buddhist Sinhalese who practise tolerance as per the Buddhist way of life in a pluralistic society and uphold the major elements of the Five Precepts viz: abstain from taking life, abstain from taking what is not given (what is not yours), abstain from sensuous misconduct, abstain from false speech (hate speech), to abstain from intoxicants as tending to cloud the mind. Does Deshapriya contend that most Sinhalese are happy over violence inflicted on Muslims, their possessions robbed, property destroyed and Mosques damaged? What is your logic/philosophy? Aren’t you a Buddhist?

Next the EC Chairman states that Muslims here are embracing Arab culture and that is fanning distrust – we presume he is referring to the dresses worn by Muslim women in particular and also Muslim men. Nothing of that sort. Arab culture and our culture are completely different. But the religion of Islam is one for all. In this present Global Village concept and Digital / Internet age, each person in any community could see the ‘fashions’ or ‘trends’ prevailing in their other brotherly / sisterly communities and could (or would) ‘copy’ such trends and of course these trends will change with time. For example, Muslims (Moors) men wore Fez headgear a generation ago, today it is scalp caps or no covering of the head. Please correct yourself from believing that Muslim girls are insulated from others – they are fully with the girls with other communities and speak good Sinhala. The girls (and also boys too) attend Muslim International schools because some government schools (not all), both Buddhist and Christian, give step motherly treatment to Muslims in their admission procedures.

His challenge for Muslims to invite Buddhists monks for lectures in a totally Muslim institutions is already existing for a long time. They – learned Buddhist monks – have delivered lectures on Islam, the history of Muslims in Sri Lanka (Ceylon) and peaceful co-existence. The recent riots brought many Buddhist monks to safeguard Muslims in the affected areas and gave physical protection especially during the Friday prayers – we the Muslims are ever grateful to the Buddhist clergy and the Buddhists, Christians and Hindus for their unstinted help to the Muslim community in the time of need – May Allah (God) Shower His Blessings on all these right minded people.

    But you and 99% of the so called Sri Lankan Muslims do not look Moorish or for that matter Arabic at all but look very Dravidian and Tamil , that you really are but are pathetically trying to ape the Arabs and Moors, especially in the past two decades and deny your actual Tamil heritage.. What the EC chairman stated is correct. Sinhalese racism is another matter. Look at you with your typical South Indian Dravidian looks still trying to say Sri Lankan Muslims are Moors when in reality they are not but Tamils. What has Moor or Arab got to do with Islam? Lots of Arabs are Christian or Druze and not Muslim and not 95% of the world’s Muslims are not Arab nor Moor. This is like every Christian in the world stating they are Jewish as Lord Jesus Christ was a Jew or every Buddhist in the world claiming to be Indian and the Indian culture as Lord Budda was an Indian. The Sri Lankan Muslims have an identity crisis. They live in South Asia and are of South Asian origin and heritage but badly want to be Arab/Moor and want to be in South Western/Western Asia or in North Africa. This where all the problem lies. If you want to be a good Tamil South Asian Muslim , following the Tamil/Indian Islamic culture and customs remain here. If you want to be Moor/Arab please leave and go to Arabia or to Morocco, see wether they will accept you wannabe Arab/Moor, Dravidian South Asian converts to Islam. This island is Sinhalese./Tamil with a Buddhist/Hindu culture , not Wahhabi Arab or Moor.

      Malam unnum panrikutti,
      We know you are another avatar of RSS Sharma, whose hatred for SL muslims is laughable. Your agony of not seeing SL muslims as Tamils in SL is pathetic. In another forum you will appear as psychopath RSS Sharma, singing same old sour song to calm your distraught soul. Grow up and see how you could spend your time usefully by helping families of displaced and disappeared fellow Tamil brethern in the country without looking at their castes to find out whether the belong to Brahmin, Kshatriya, Vaishya or Shudra caste.

        He is not me but I am glad that he and many other Tamils are taking now openly coming forward and commenting about the real origin of the Sri Lankan Muslims. Lots of Tamils are now more or less posting the same thing and they are all my avatars I do not have to come under any avatar or identity and comment. I am capable of making comments under my own identity and defending my self. Many of the people,under pseudo Sinhalese and Tamil identities attacking his comments are Muslims , who are uncomfortable with the truth. Tamils are helping displaced Tamil families irrespective of caste and creed and the only people who are hindering are the Muslims and Sinhalese, as they want to grab Tamil lands. No one is discussing caste just you, to muddy the waters and cunningly imply Tamils are casteist. . You and many of the Muslims want his comment removed , because you do not want the truth about the origin of the Sri Lankan Muslims. Shows your fascist nature of not wanting anything that you do not like being posted. There is nothing abusive, there are far more abusive comments from Muslims like Ralli Ameen Fathima and more and Shenal, Percy and many others about the Tamils and there are not protest from all these people who are protesting now. His comment is highly relevant, as the author of this article is indeed defending the Arabisation of Sri Lankan Muslim culture , stating that as Muslims it is their culture, which is nonsense. Even the late Mudaliar Kariappar, a famous eastern Muslim politician stated, the Muslims of Sri Lanka and the Tamils are the same people and the only thing that separates them is their religion.

          Here the RSSS crow cawing. You know for every action there is a reaction. What everybody writing here against Australoid crows and piglets is the reaction for your hate filled comment on Moors. You are defending Pandi Kutti because he is your avatar. I had written many times if you want to make the Moors to call themselves Tamils do it in a nice way like writing a book on Moors genealogy giving all the proofs including customs, culture, food, dress etc and from where they came, why they were known as traders and if necessary go to court to prove it. You know another fact that Arab sailors were provided with low caste Tamil women because may be your pimp generation supplied the women. You say even in Sri Lanka your northern Chieftains supplied land and women. So much facts you have in hand so why not write a book? There are Tamils commenting here but they stick to the subject. Why do you need the ethnicity of Moors to give your view on the subject. That is because there few like you who are anti-Muslim, may be supported by outside forces. So when Australoid crows and piglets attack Moors here you can expect return attacks.

        Why should the moderator remove my comment? I have not abused anyone . Stating the obvious fact about a persons looks or the actual origin of a people, may be abusive or derogatory to you , as this is what is in your mind , Dravidian or Tamil lower than Arab. This is why Muslim commentators like Ralli Ameen abuse Tamils as Australoid or Negorid as in their minds These people are low and Tamils are low. I did not see you and the rest clamouring for his comments , that are really offensive to be removed, as you agree with those comments but not mine. All humans are equal. This is what the church teaches me. Most probably if I stated the opposite you and the rest here would have praised me. Love Pandi Kutti.

How all humans can be equal for you when you talk about low caste, high caste. May be your priest must be a Brahmin as usual with Tamil Hindus. You rotten Australoid Pandi Kutti Jesus will punish you by reducing the number of days you have to be taken to the slaughter house if you talk bad of other community.

          al-faq… Change ur nick name as Pandivisnu.. you hiding in a name similar to a Muslim arabic name.. This is a prove how your dirty racist $ coward mindset is exposing towards Muslims. you must have the same ideologies of what RSS ( Racist Sangparivar Sena ) of India has with them
          The reason I just commeted to remove as its not appropriate to the subject as per the policy of CT. Its upto CT.. Thats all..

          You accepted you worship PIG as a TAMIL GOD.. The pigs which you see in waste-pits , usually eating human waste – Pee – are a result of unhygienic surroundings which is common in many locations in India and chalta-hai attitude.
          One of the avatara’s of vishnu in a Purana (means fabricated myths ), was called “Varahavatara”, meaning God’s manifestation in the form of PIG..In fact its for all Indus not only Thamils..

      Dear Mohamed R. M. Farook,
      .
      Can’t you understand the simple fact that neither Mahinda Deshapriya, nor guys like me are happy about racism and communal violence. What he was doing is warning that we should not be complacent. The situation is potentially explosive.
      .

      I also second his view that YOU, the Mulsims, and in particular the men, should try, in whatever way is possible to help reduce tensions.
      .
      We don’t want to be in a position where we can claim to have helped you in time of trouble. Let us avoid times of trouble.

        Sinhala_Man ,

        Let us face the music . There was a time when you met a Muslim man ,
        you didn’t feel allergic and he didn’t feel allergic due to many good
        reasons and the same was right with Tamils meeting Muslim and
        Sinhala . Not that everything was going well , but there was no open
        hatred by politics and religions.But all that has changed now for worse
        and grown up beyond control . It is , in my view , with the growth of
        internet has gone from bad to worse ! Not to blame internet for that .
        Like everything else , for purpose – born wrong creatures , this has
        become a blessing .Even school CHILDREN got involved this time
        through parents’ mobile phones and such is the distance the rage has
        travelled . This RACISM has now become a NEW RELIGION of hunting
        the MINORITY , whether Muslims or Tamils . Tamils who are dancing
        here , either forgot where the wholesale hunting started or rejoice for
        application of the same thing on Muslims. Some Tamils are very busy
        tracing Muslim’s origins , culture and language etc . Waste of their time .
        Some Tamils are behaving like , if Muslims had been with them in their
        sufferings , Muslims today won’t face this ! Stupidity at its best I think .
        Majority of Muslims were never happy about Tamil’s sufferings
        BECAUSE OF ONE SIMPLE REASON THAT THEY ARE PART OF MINORITY.
        Language religion apart ! AND MUSLIMS , DEEP INSIDE KNEW , ONE DAY
        THIS COULD BEFALL THEM ! And it is that day that had raised its ugly
        head in Aluthgama, Gintota,Ampara and Kandy . Muslims understand the
        language and will take care of themselves . The attack was not only to
        Muslims but also blows to DEMOCRATIC VALUES . to the UNP VOTE BASE
        and in a sense to the Western influence !

            Sinhala_Man has to look at what whywhy has said. ‘Tamils who are dancing here , either forgot where the wholesale hunting started or rejoice for application of the same thing on Muslims’. This is what he has said. How can he be my friend?
            *
            whywhy brazenly says that some Tamils are very busy tracing Muslim’s origins. Is that so? Muslims have been running away from their origin for quite some time now. That’s the fact.

            whywhy, Tell us, – tell me -, straight. What’s your origin? What’s your language? What’s your culture?

            Here is yet another nugget. ‘Muslims understand the language and will take care of themselves’.

              Thappu ,

              Thappu thappa panreppa ! Why are you trying to set Sinhala_Man
              against me ? He knows what I am saying here and doesn’t need your
              interpretations . I save my time on some issues by directing you to
              Shenal’s answer to Sharma down here ! National and International
              historians have written enough on Srilankan Muslims and the
              efforts of people like you to give it your version in order to satisfy
              your anger against Muslims , won’t go far dear Thappu ! Muslims
              have no interest in distancing themselves from any community let
              alone Tamils . Their life in Colombo is proof . I have been dead honest
              about whatever I said here on the prevailing situation without any
              exaggeration . And remember , vast number of Muslims and Tamils
              live outside North and East and their life is in the mix with Sinhalese.
              We have both good and bad experiences with them and so bad ones
              alone won’t count here . We have a government to control bad
              elements and international institutions to oversee govt moves . So now
              according to you , speaking of minorities itself is seeking companions
              in you ? That is your imagination and it is Thappu ! Haven’t I said very
              clearly ‘ we’ll take care of ourselves ‘ ? Maybe that is what you want me
              to say. I remember JRJ once said he will seek help even from the Devil .
              Anyway , I appreciate about you having time for Muslims just like some
              men like good Sinhala_Man . Don’t worry about me , I am covered . As
              for the case of Internet , present situation used Internet for fast delivery
              and that is what I meant and that doesn’t mean without Internet this
              wouldn’t have happened !

      Pandi Kutti,

      ” What the EC chairman stated is correct. Sinhalese racism is another matter. Look at you with your typical South Indian Dravidian looks still trying to say Sri Lankan Muslims are Moors when in reality they are not but Tamils”

      They all are Paras, Para-Sinhala, Para-Tamil, and Para-Muslims from Southern India, Bhaart, Damba-Diva, per DNA testing sand human genetics testing of the Paras. It is likely that the Para-Muslims have a few percent middle eastern genetics, and the Para-Sinhala and Para-Tamils have a few percent Portuguese genetics.

      All the Paras should get back to their Para Homeland , India, Bharat, Damba-Diva and leave the Lannd of Native Veddah Aethho.

      Mitochondrial DNA history of Sri Lankan ethnic people: their relations within the island and with the Indian subcontinental populations

      Here the Australoid piglet (Pandi kutti) snort. Are you an Australoid Tamil piglet or Sinhalese piglet. Never mind for whichever piglet race you belong, just don’t snort when you are hungry. There is a shanty town close to our place since no toilet facilities there everybody do poopu on the bank of canal there. Go there you will have enough to eat. Although it is not necessary to educate piglets but I will give some information. Tamil Christian do not call themselves Jews because their god was Jew. There is only Dravidian Languages no race such as Dravidian. A Muslim can be a Arab, Turkish or from any other races. The author not at look like Australoid piglet or crow but can be passed as any other race because there are people having same facial features in the other races including non-Australoid Tamils. Islamic culture is same for all the Muslims although race may be different. Right now I am not thinking of leaving Sri Lanka because only a small percentage of Australoid piglets and crows here. If it become over 50% I will definitely leave. Who wants to live with such ugly specimens surrounding you.

      What EC said sadly is true. He should be commended for the forthright view unlike double tongued Sinhala politicians. When Tamils were attacked in 1983, majority of the Sinhalese said Tamils deserved it. So there is nothing to be surprised about the position of Sinhalese now. Unfortunately even the moderate among the Sinhalese are either remaining silent or are speaking out against the Muslims. They blame the government either present or past for turning a blind eye to Islamic radicalisation and Arabisation, which is making some ordinary citizens in taking law into their hands. Some people have gone to the extent of commenting that Koran has to be revised to get rid of the hatred that it is preaching against other religionists. Others ask who gave permission to construct 750 madarassas and want all of them to be closed as they are fuelling radicalism. They say that mosques where there are no sufficient Muslims living around have to closed and no loud speakers to be allowed to be used. They are saying that Muslims have to go back to how they lived in the country before, adhering to Srilankan culture and customs without imitating Arabs, and unless they comply with it, there is bound to trouble. .

        What SriLankan culture we have to follow? Hundred of years back there was no Sinhala dress code, just Ammude or sarong introduced by Moors and Malays. Later Vaysti from Nadar and Kurta from north India. Now pants, shirts and T-shirts which your women too wear. Muslim also wore (not Ammude) sarong and later pants and shirts or white trouser and kurta (only men) and women wore whatever descent dress like saree, women’s Shalwar Kameez and to cover themselves use hijab. Some women wear long skirts and hijab. So the dress code is same except ammude and now your women following western dress code, that is sleeveless T-shirts and jeans. Culture is social behavior and not much different from yours and custom is tradition of Sinhalese and we have to be Sinhalese to follow yours. So what is eating you to write like a donkey here?

    Not that I disapprove of the choice of attire by any ethnic group, but there has been a change in attire of Muslims since 1970’s and particularly in recent decades.
    That was what the EC referred to I think.
    What is truly worrying is the meddling by Saudi Arabia in the affairs of Muslims here. It is nothing for other ethnic groups to worry about, but something that the Muslim community needs to address seriously.

      Correct. The “jobs” were in SA and therefore they went and were influenced by the culture.
      Sri Lankan ex patriots from the west are no different except for the politically orientated who for obvious reasons have a different dress code.
      The EC probably has some political ambition; that’s ok.

        I have no objection to the influence of any culture. What one wears is a matter of personal choice and should be tolerated, desirably accepted, as long as it does not hurt the sensibilities of others. There too there is room for compromise (like with what Western tourists wear).

      In reality both the Sinhalese and Muslims are overwhelmingly descended from Tamil Dravidians and not from Aryans or Arabs. At least there are many amongst the Sinhalese, who are now willing to acknowledge this truth and the great injustice done to the island’s Tamils in the name of Sinhalese and Buddhism and want to remedy this. However this not so in the case of the Muslims. They all stubbornly defend their Arab origin myth . Even the educated ones, living here or overseas , these people should know better. Their core ancestry is Tamil and Dravidian and this has been proven, despite this ,they stubbornly keep on claiming an Arab ancestry and referring to themselves as Moors, thinking a lie often told becomes the truth. They will aggressively attack any person who challenges this Arab origin myth. One person here has demanded Pandi Kutti’s (strange name) comment to be removed. Why? Shows intolerance and supressing any view that is contrary to theirs and stifling debate. They just want to shove their view and opinion of themselves down everyone’s throat. Very Sharia, just like in Islamic countries. Now we have this spectre of aggressive Wahhabi Arabisation of all aspects of their lives and the resulting fallouts. This is all very worrying. Like you stated they benefitted the most during the suppression of the Tamils and during the war but keep on playing the victim. Like all Tamils I am worried about their behaviour in the east, where they are aggressively trying to steal the land from its actual Tamil owners. They do have a right to live in dignity and peace but not aggressively steal what is not theirs. Their history in the east is fairly recent.

        When Muslims continue to deny their ancestry, they are only bastardising their ethnicity, like one who does not know who his father is, calling another as his father. Best way out for this is to subject all Muslims to DNA test, and despite the result, if they still stick on to Arab roots, to strip them off their citizenship. I am certain that such a bill will be passed with an overwhelming majority in parliament. If you could do to the Indian Tamils why not for these ungrateful people of mainly Sinhala origin.

          Al-fukka, do you know DNA test and cannot be used to show the relationship races in the past or present. DNA testing is just a hype except for paternity testing, other test have significant scientific limitations and cannot prove the ancestry of a person. This what scientist says. Only donkeys like you like think idiotic way because do not have the true knowledge genetics.

        Rohan,

        Sinhalese are a mix of Dravidian, North Indian, Moorish and most recently Caucasian ethnicities. That is the truth. Sinhalese bears this genetic mix up more or less according to the person concerned. There is no any injustice done to the Tamil as a ethnicity. They are occupying the niche in the society according to their history. They have come late into the island and settled in the Northern and Eastern seaboards. What you people get wrong is that you are always willing to mix the ancient Tamils who had lived alongside Sinhalese with these new arrivals.

          Sinhalese are mix of Dravidian. North Indian Moorish and Causacian ethnicities . Yes not only are the Sinhalese even the Tamils and the Sri Lankan Muslims but the Dravidian is the predominant in all three of them and the rest is all minor. DNA has proved this. Sinhalese have a 70% DNA in common with Indian Tamils and the core DNA of the Sri Lankan Muslim is not Arab or Moor but South Indian. Only a few hundred Sri Lankan Muslim families have a distant male Arab ancestor but these few distant male Arab ancestors , amongst these few hundred families , has now become the ancestor of all Sri Lankan Muslims. The Sri Lankan Tamil , despite being Dravidian , shares only 17% DNA with the Indian Tamil. As for the North Indian origin the DNA has again proved that Sri Lankan Tamils who do not claim any North Indian origin have a marginally higher Bengali DNA 28%-29% compared to the Sinhalese 25% but the Sinhalese like the Sri Lankan Muslims only claim this 25% DNA as their sole origin and heritage and ignore the 70% DNA that they have in common with the Indian Tamils. The rest of the DNA contribution from Arabs , Europeans etc are so minimal, they are not worth talking about and even the Sri Lankan Tamils will have them too. You and the Sri Lankan Muslims will keep on talking about every other marginal genetic contribution to you rDNA but will ignore the elephant in the room the South Indian /Tamil/Dravidian contribution to your genes that is more than 70%in the case of the Sinhalese and 95% or more in the case of the Sri Lankan Muslims . We all know that 50% of more of the present day Sinhalese are purely descended from low caste South Indian menial labour that was imported into the island by the Portuguese and the Dutch and settled along the southern and western coast.

            Real Siva Sankarna Sharma,

            It is hilarious when you say Sri Lankan Tamils contains only 17% of the Indian Tamil DNA despite having 99% similarity with the Indian Tamils. Furthermore, the people use accuse of having more than 70% DNA similarity with the Indian Tamils are the ones having differences to the Indian Tamils.

            You are debunking your own hypothesis. Accept the plain reality man, Sri Lankan Tamils are recent arrivals to the island. It is not going to change no matter how hard you try to portrait it otherwise.

    Actually the civilized world applauded “the unruly Muslim taming EVENTS”.
